The Throne Room is surrounded by exotic fishes, corals and caverns, but it's most famous of the orange elephant ear sponge found here. The sheer size of the demosponge makes it appear like a throne, hence the name bestowed upon this site. The dive gets you acquainted with barracudas, eels and stings rays before you exit the waters from another end of the reef.

For adrenaline fanatics, there is a platform to launch yourself into the waters from a height of seven meters (25 feet). For the less adventurous visitors, ladders are a perfect way to descend into the pool. After a swim, visitors can also indulge themselves in a soothing massage infused with minerals from the spring.
